Vacancy: Editor-in-chief Erasmus Student Journal of Philosophy

The editorial board of the Erasmus Student Journal of Philosophy (ESJP) is looking for a new editor-in-chief, starting for the fall issue of next academic year (edition 19). At this moment we are preparing for the 18th edition. As the next editor-in-chief you will first join the editorial board as an editor for this edition to get familiar with the editing process, current organizational affairs and your future team members of the editorial board.

The ESJP is a double-blind peer-reviewed student journal that publishes the best philosophical papers written by students from the Erasmus School of Philosophy and from the Humanities Program of the Erasmus University College. The ESJP aims to further enrich the philosophical environment in which Rotterdam’s philosophy students develop their thinking and to bring their best work to the attention of a wider intellectual audience. More information can be found here: https://www.eur.nl/en/esphil/about-us/esjp

As editor-in-chief you will lead a team of approximately 14 editors from the BA Philosophy, Bachelor in Philosophy of a Specific Degree, BA Liberal Arts and Sciences, MA Philosophy, and the Research Master Philosophy & Economics. The editorial board consists of a mix of Dutch and international students, which means that candidates should have a good command of English. Although the majority of the articles we publish are in English, some articles are in Dutch. Proficiency in Dutch hence is an advantage, but not required.

Main responsibilities:

● Preparing meetings of the editorial board and chairing them;

● Coordinating the editorial process;

● Ensuring a stable continuation of the journal and a healthy editorial board in all possible ways.

What we are looking for:

● Passion for academic philosophy;

● Social skills;

● Organizational talent or at least no anxiety for practical matters like sending an email. 

If you are interested in becoming the next editor-in-chief of ESJP, please send a letter of motivation and a CV (about one single-spaced A4) to esjp@esphil.eur.nl before the 27th of March.
